I used to have the AR-536, which is the 5x version of that optic, otherwise same/same. It was a pretty decent optic for what it was, and at that price point. But in the end, I gritted my teeth, clenched my butt, and sprung for a 4x32 Trijicon ACOG. I’ve never regretted it. My motivation was twofold: the first being that the ACOG is just plain rugged and combat proven....they’re built like a tank; and the second being that I didn’t want to be dependent on a battery for the illumination of the reticle. The ACOG has both a tritium element and a fiberoptic element. In fact, in bright sunlight, the reticle almost too bright. I learned from a marine friend to put a piece of electrical tape over the fiberoptic element, and then I can vary the light exposure reaching the reticle by changing the position of the tape.lama wrote:I can not comment on the specific Burris scope mentioned above but I like their products. The AR-332 is a fixed 3x that I have enjoyed shooting on my Father In-Law's AR.

But, the buy in is steep, and so people are not often willing to spend that kind of money on a scope for their first AR.
